The Vintage Housewife was created to share my love of all things vintage, and to embrace the routine and ritual of keeping house and nurturing my family with joy, kindness, and generosity.

I started the Vintage Housewife website to be an inspiring, encouraging, positive, and uplifting corner of the Internet. Join me as I embrace a simpler, thriftier, more domesticated lifestyle.

Subscribe to weekly emails where I share my progress in the 1950’s Housewife Challenge, housekeeping tips, & fun and easy DIYs.


Real life inspiration and tips for housekeeping, and creating a sense of order and cleanliness in our home.


Inspiration, practical tips, and thoughts about embracing a simpler & thriftier lifestyle.

I’ve put together a list of recommended resources that I’ve either personally used (in most cases) or which have come highly recommended to me by people I trust.
